Jiro Dreams of Sushi and Michael's Genuine: Dinner and a Movie

Jiro Ono is an 85 year-old chef who owns a small 10-seat restaurant tucked away in a Tokyo subway station. This could be the beginning and end of the tale of a man who still works hard long after most people are already retired.

What we didn't tell you is that Ono's tiny, unassuming sushi restaurant, Sukiyabashi Jiro, is considered to be the finest in the world. Sukiyabashi Jiro shares a three Michelin star distinction with only about 100 other restaurants in the world, including French Laundry, Ducasse at the Plaza Athenee, and Le Bernadin. The rich and famous make reservations months in advance to experience the sushi master's creations.


In the new documentary& Jiro Dreams of Sushi, Ono's life and his

relationship with his son, Yoshikazu is explored. David Gelb directed

the 81-minute film, which the New York Times said "was better than takeout." Anthony Bourdain liked it a little better,

calling the documentary, "a thrilling and beautiful portrait of a family

and the most thorough,

concise and maddeningly delicious looking explanation of the all too

frequently misunderstood world of sushi."

Decide for yourself

next week, when O Cinema shows Jiro Dreams of Sushi from Thursday, March

22 - Sunday, March 25. Tickets are $10.50 for adults, $9 for seniors

and students. For a schedule of show times, click here.

For a complete foodie date night, O

Cinema and Michael's Genuine Food & Drink are teaming up for

another OMG! Dinner and a Movie on Monday, March 19 at 7 p.m.


For

$30, you'll enjoy a great meal consisting of pesto ricotta crostini,

peperonata salad, local broccoli gratin, and stufato di manzo. For

dessert there's chef Hedy Goldsmith's bittersweet chocolate + Panther

espresso pudding cake with chocolate covered espresso beans (which should

keep you awake for the movie). And every movie needs popcorn, so you'll

get a bag of spiced Cracker Jack with chipolte and maldon salt to munch

on. Purchase tickets here.

Here's the trailer, in which we see Jiro's poor adult son being reminded that being doubly as good as his father will still never be enough.
